When you hire someone like you, you’re duplicating a skill set, a background or a perspective—or all three.
When you hire someone you like, you’re working from the wrong criteria.
It’s great to enjoy the people you’re working with, but it’s far more important that they can stretch who you are and what you know.
While you don’t want to hire anyone toxic or exceptionally difficult, remember that some tension is necessary for developing great work.
But bad hires are easier to avoid than the ones that aren’t terrible but also aren’t the best you could do.
